September 24, 2012 (Tsuu Tina Nation, Alberta, Canada)  – GEObet Gambling Network, sponsor of the iGaming Symposium at the Trading Places Economic Development Conference in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan tomorrow, is pleased to confirm that Chief Eugene Eastman, Saulteaux-Dakota/O-Chi-Chak-Ko-Sipi First Nation in Manitoba, will be among the First Nations leaders speaking at the event. He will join a panel discussion exploring the sovereign rites being exercised in order to establish an igaming industry. Also on the panel will be Bernie Shepherd, the former Chief of the White Bear First Nation and the driving force behind the first Indian-owned land-based casino in Canada, and prominent First Nations entrepreneur Gerry Gionet, founder of the GEObet Gambling Network. Gerry Gionet is of the Saulteaux-Dakota/ O-Chi-Chak-Ko-Sipi First Nation currently living and operating his businesses in the Tsuu Tina First Nation.

iGaming industry experts from France, the UK and Vancouver will also be converging on Saskatoon for the event to offer their insight into operating an online gambling company and provide information on the  revenue and employment opportunities the industry has generated in other jurisdictions.

“It is our right to develop our own industries, industries that will create jobs for our people and generate revenue for our communities,” said Shepherd. “Many of us are convinced that creating an online gambling industry will have many benefits to our Nations, just as there has been from our land-based casinos.”

“We have the technology and management expertise to make this happen,” said Gionet from one of his engineering construction worksites in Fort MacMurray.  “We’re ready to move on this right now. We want the community participating in the process from the beginning. We hope this conference will get the dialogue going.”

The GEObet Gambling Network, operated by Golden Arrow Worldwide Ltd, is currently exploring opportunities with Saskatchewan First Nations to develop an online gaming industry.  The GEObet Gambling Network offers a simple solution to tribal and independent casino operators to compliment and extend their land-based casino operations, enabling them to immediately start moving their land-based casino customers online.
